, republicans defense, we have elevated this issue of obama care to a whole new sphere
and fired one shot. >> we don't have anything to dispute his claim of self-defense. >> we're hearing that another young black man is killed and nothing is going to be done. >> this was the tensest situation i'd ever walked into. >> we were a tinderbox. we had people referring to us as racists, as no good cracker town. >> to me sanford is a good ole boy town. they only look out for their own. >> we want an arrest! we want an arrest! >> by now, you're probably already familiar with the story. on a rainy february evening, an african-american teenager trayvon martin is shot and killed after getting into a fight with a gun-carrying neighborhood watch leader george zimmerman. many react angrily. martin is only 17. he's not armed. and he's not breaking the law. he's just walking home from a convenience store after buying a cold drink and some candy. >> we want justice. >> that anger soon takes on a life of its own. and the case becomes much more than a murder trial. >> this case is about racial profiling. >> but why this case? why here? to understand you only need to start looking a couple
. a lot of heroes tonight. a lot of guys that don't get a lot of publicity. the defensive linemen. tony harris is woshing hard today. >> fourth and nine. and they will not. the pass is dropped by amerson. lose it on downs. they're out of time-outs. and the dallas cowboys are going to be tied with the philadelphia eagles for first place in the nfc east. >> cris: this was a perfect throw. just a dead flat drop on fourth down. right in the midsection. >> cris: overall, what is your assessment of grif continue to night? we saw a couple flashes of the old griffin. >> cris: i think he fought his guts out. he looked better running tonight. they had no running game to speak of. it was only his runs, his scrambles in the first half. didn't get a lot of support. and his receivers didn't get open for him. >> al: they dropped the ball. >> cris: they dropped the ball. he had a couple moments. but for most part, i would not pin this within on rg-3. >> al: right after the game we we'll have a look ahead to next week's monster matchup. >> cris: robert griffin. he has seen some of the skills that made h
. a little combination sack. and this defense, you just can't give them enough credit. this has been a hang with them kind of game. and they have been tough. these guys pulled off the street to make up this defensive line and have been getting it done. >> al: selvie is doing a great job. he bounced around st. louis, carolin carolina, jacksonville. first and goal. from the 3. and a stop at the 2. the fourth running play they played since nury kim out of the game. bowen makes the tackle, second and goal. >> cris: you think? that was nasty coming down the line. the former cowboy. boy did he put a lick on joseph randal. >> al: that's an interesting statistic. fumbles are normally a 50/50 proposition. only the fourth time he lost a fumble in 18 fumbles. so he's been very lucky. second down and goal from the 2. he finds his way out of the end zone and randal keeps the legs going and he's in there. >> cris: i think travis frederick pushed him in the end zone. i don't think randal was going to make it. barry riley had him tied up here. he went back to the old bench press and the leg squat and just
-willed? >> guest: they failed to respond in a manner that the terrorists would recognize as -- as a real defense of this country. so there was one attack after another. and the weakness of the response only convinced the terrorists that they could win, that in fact we were a paper tiger, and it -- it caused them to increase the level and intensity of their attacks. it enabled them to get recruits, because it looked as though they were the winning side. it helped them establish themselves in afghanistan and elsewhere. and i think september 11 was part of the price we paid for that decade of failing to respond. c-span: you name names in here about people you don't agree with, like james baker and brent scowcroft and colin powell. they are all friends of this president, and you're supposedly a close friend of this president. explain that. >> guest: well, i'm not a close friend of the president, although i admire him greatly. i was part of the little group that advised before the campaign. i have not seen him since the campaign. these reports of my influence of the president are greatly exaggerated.
effects of his knee have the defense off to a 1-3 start. still, a victory tonight would put them right back in it in the slow pace nfc east. not too many people have gathered just yet. we're about an hour and a half from kickoff. better than 90,000 will be here at 7:30 central time. wh wa when washington and dallas go at it. the eagles, al, won today over winless tampa bay. that makes the eagles 3-3. and the 0-6 giants though, a sub- .500 doesn't put you out of the division. >> it's a crazy division k washington get some traction? started 0-3. they had a bye week. i'm looking at dallas' schedule, if they lose tonight, they'll be 2-4. they play four of the next five on the road. they go to philadelphia next week, detroit, they have the vikings here, then they go to new orleans, then they go to the giants. so i think tonight's game for the dallas cowboys in particular is a critical game. >> focusing on washington a year ago, rg-3, a sensation and then in the play-off loss to seattle, serious knee injury, extensive rehab. how close to back is he? >> every time he takes the field and in my
attacking the defense department for the decision to withhold benefits for grieving families of fallen troops. >> you chose to do an interpretation to maximize pain. >> duncan hunter on what he's learning about the decision some now claim was no accident. also, an 18- wheel revolt in washington. in just hours, thousands of truckers plan to shut down the capitol. we'll hear from one with a big rig message to congress. >>> and everyone goes to sin city uh to have fun. so why are these unions assaulting tourists on the strip? breaking news tonight. good evening. i'm megyn kelly. critical neg investigations over a plan to raise the nation's debt limit. house republicans presenting their proposal to president obama during a closed meeting at the the white house a few hours ago. suggesting a six-week extension, we believe, while the parties negotiate spend ing cuts and tax reform on a larger basis. both sides i say the meeting was productive. no word on a deal. meantime we are hearing the white house is insisting that the government be re opened as part of a debt deal. something republicans
as this decision to bring back 300,000 to to the defense department. that beats in to the end that this is a really a crisis that feel. >> that's true. the defense department is really can going back to work. that. on the other hand the president does the sandwich shop with joe biden and with television and the republicans getting their message out anyway they can . 86% of fema. people came back to help the tropical storm "karen." >> what do the polls tell us about what's going on. >> it's interesting. >> people are just does gusted, i hate to say it. but, i think republicans have more to blame at this point but then the president -- i think americans. what will happen if we go over that debt ceiling. it's sendtial for an economic crisis. they say it's not that big a deal and the 64% of key party voters say it's not that big a deal. what happensing here is the message is not reaching people. >> i think -- it's dynamic and where we are because tea party will represent the tea party and the hardest oh of the hard core which is now republican-based. any speaker of the house does not turn his or her ba
.3 billion dollars driving up to the defense ministry of our money. and these guys don't view it as a favor, but they think it's an investment, a u.s. investment in partnership. a partnership that is primarily between two defense establishments. >> the money also goes to pay for training. and that to me is the biggest single benefit is that all these egyptian military guys coming over here, going to schools in american military schools. they're in our system learning. the other interesting thing is they make friends. and they all feel free to get advice because they're classmates. >> do you think people are giving general sisi advice? >> yes well i'm sure they are. sisi's been to school here too so i would imagine he's done the same thing. keep in contact with friends. general abdel fattah el sisi, today egypt's strong man, spent a year at the us army war college in carlisle, pennsylvania. his advisor was retired colonel stephen gerras. >> i would assert for any conversation that a senior department of defense official has with a general from another country, if they've been through a senio
agencies, cia, nsa, fbi, the defense department, department of homeland security, all important security agencies who are still out of work. some of them have been called back now. but even more important than that, the leaders of these who undoubtedly the american people expect should be focusing on leading their agencies to protect terrorist threats, are spending a substantial part of each day managing the shutdown figuring out which employees need to be furloughed, what the messages to their employees to keep up or out. down theors are up-and- chain trying to counsel their employees. morrell has plummeted. some people are being told, oh, you are not important, we are letting you go. and the employees themselves are not even getting paid, even the ones who remain on the job. host: how much do we know about what isn't getting done? story talking about concerns about defending against cyber attacks, keeping a on ballistic missile launches around the world, possibly impacted by the shutdown, and sadly analyzing the raw intelligence data for those who make the decisions. right, and obvious
's what i have control over. so working with our organization, working with the department of defense, we're going to find a solution and one that works for the families. congress and the president will work things out. i have every confidence that at some point this mr. work again, but in the meantime we need to be thinking about the families. >> david and his foundation stepping up. defense secretary chuck hagel traveled to dover as four families await the return of their family member's bodies. he said he was offended, outraged and embarrassed because of this situation. >>> the baby boomer and senior expo will take place tomorrow. admission is $2 or two cans of nonper rshable food items. you can get the chance to win prizes and meet some of the people on abc2. stop by and say hello to jamie costello. >> i was right there. >>> all right. words can hurt just as badly has sticks and stones but the battle against bullying is getting more difficult. coming up one area is putting up a fight. >> we're taking your calls on health. >> on this cloudy breezy day. 61, eight degrees below average.

bier on defense. we're getting tired of defense. we're getting tired of holding on like the edge of a clef and what we have had for decades whether aggregate limits on campaign financing or rights at work work, of the voting rights as a supreme court strips of the voting rights, we are tired to be on defense. it does not mean we will not stand up for fight back when we are under attack. we will not keep played defense. but imagine if all these organizations are working together on offense, we are. and we came together to informed that democracy initiative for we all work together. our membership together is more than 20 million. and the question is can we make democracy? because each of us first work on the environment. or we work on economic justice to defend the standard of living like against brutal corporate tax up against even worse. with the democracy groups that lead the effort to do work on democracy is the first issue. we need to connect the dots so all members understand this is either the most important issue or the second. not just mccutcheon as we heard, of voting ri
the president nine days before he finally ordered the department of defense to come up with a work-around. >> the department of defense in consultation with the office of management and budget developed a solution overnight. >> we actually passed legislation that would reopen that stream of funding so that these families can get the benefits they deserve. >> our defense took care of everything and so this issue is largely moot. it's clear the action on this legislation is now for show here. >> for that contract it obligates itself to reimburse the fisher house upon the reopening of the government. so it's not just the fisher house taking on the sole responsibility in perpetuity for making these payments. >> it does need legislation. >> it does not need new legislation. when it gets attention, lawmakers rush to propose a fix when there is an obvious available fix to avoid all of these negative consequences. open the government. >> a moments ago republican senator tom coburn opening this scathing legislation. it's the spoken will of congress that we deliver immediate assistance to th

and they may be cancelled altogether. >> reporter: u.s. defense department released the first details about the man the special forces tried to capture in somalia this weekend and he is called akrina is said to be an al shabaab commander and behind the expansion into kenya and i'm joined by andrew who is in the capitol nairobi and they said it targeted the man who we just said a creamer. do we know anything about him? >> well, according to the pentagon this man has a long background in activity throughout east africa and is known. we have seen, in fact, in intelligence report, an intelligence service report that was leaked a week ago he was reported in a number of incidents and foiled at attacks within kenya itself. as far as this raid goes, late on friday night at faroway a small town to the south of mogadishu and a force landed on the beach and tried to attack a house, there was a fierce gun fight and creamer was the target. the u.s. is saying that they did not get him, an unknown number of people were killed, we've heard from our sources it could be up to two others were killed. the u.s.
. the offense is doing it up as they have gone three connective games, scoring 30 or more points the defense taking care of business. four more turnovers yesterday against arizona. they turned their last 10 turnovers in the last three games into points and a rookie, what a choice he was as the number one pick. number 35 in the highlights. in the middle of everything it seems. >> good. opportunistic. you love seeing your defense generate turnovers. when they are involved in turnovers it is something in the past been very good for us. encouraging. she getting in on -- he is getting in on that. recovering. causing, intercepting. something that has been, you know, very good for the defense. >> can't help but think of another guy in the 49ers defensive backfield, ronnie lott. the raiders, if you have ever been to a football game, chiefs, arrowhead, loudest crowd in the history of professional sports. it effected terrelle pryor for sure. offensive line had something to do with it too. 10 sacs against the raiders and three interceptions after his best game last sunday in san diego. this was a step
overall and keeping defense at a higher number and therefore cutting the heck out of everybody else. no agriculture money, no education money, no health care money, no nothing. but they want to keep defense hold. that's what the other side is trying to do. i realize that's not what my republican friends here want to do. it's not just taking the number but how the number is going to be allocated across the appropriations. that's how the defense appropriations bill is put together. it absorbs all of the money and leaves all of the other budgets starving. i know defense is important. i supported a strong defense. i stood against irresponsible cuts to the defense department. but to take a lower number in the whole budget and say we'll take a lower number and give it all to defense and you can't find anything in health and education and social services that are so important. that's not right either. let me have one more point. i said one, one more point is this -- when the senator from tennessee has been very brave because there aren't that many brave people around here. he's said we may
's beneath. >> victimized by the department of defense. >> take a vow they may not be decent on their own but you made them be. >> so today we will come together as republicans and democrats. >> the president expects this to be fixed today. >> and today the remains of four u.s. soldiers killed in afghanistan arriving at dover air force base. and one of the most disgraceful things our government has ever done. it did not pay for the soldiers' families to travel to dover to receive those remains. kerry injury regard and tim cook are friends of one of the fallen soldiers, they join us. good evening to both of you. >> hi. >> hi. >> greta: tara, first to you. i know both of you are friends of the family. tell me, what was sergeant peters like? >> honestly, i don't personally know joe. we went to high school together but i am mainly friends with his wife we have become really close over the last year. we reconnected on facebook through the cloth diaper community and all i have ever heard from her was nothing but, you know, great things about him and how he took care of his family and he sounded
triggered because the defense contract management agency was furloughed. and so the contract inspectors, some of the technical inspectors, weren't there. and also that some of the government facilities had not opened up, some of of the government-owned contractor operated facilities but even the most of the civilians are back at work and some companies are still gone ahead and furloughed or laid folks off. why is this the case, that this is where companies are trying to bank savings for the future that they understand that deep defense cuts are companying or driven by what is happening? >> i think it is a combination of both. but what you're really seeing is the result of uncertainty. with unpredictability and uncertainty in the market, sue more conservative tism. it is a cascade effect. where you saw it in week one, and you see it at the second tiers in week three and third and fourth tiers in week three and four as we go on. >> what are some of the nonobvious and still immediate implications of the shutdown? >> i think there is a whole range of things the department does with industry
for calling this hearing, i want to thank our witnesses. the constitutional duty of providing defense counsel to people who cannot afford it in criminal trials is clear, it is equally clear that even before the sequester and before the shutdown we were doing a far from adequate, indeed, i would say an unconstitutionally inadequate job of doing so. it is clear the sequester and now the shutdown is making it far worse. and that's not the only impact on the judiciary, but it is those constitutionally-clear violation. i look forward to hearing from our witnesses about the impact, and unfortunately, it's pretty clear what we have to do about it, so we don't really need a lot of advice on what to do. we need to end the shutdown, we need to end the sequester, and we need to give adequate funding. but it is very valuable to highlight just how deep the problem is right now, and i thank all our witnesses, and i thank the chairman. i yield back. >> thank you very much, jerry. we welcome our panelists who were con seened under -- convened under very tight circumstances. we rarely come together this quick
of the subcommittee and staff. thank you for the opportunity to appear today to update you on the department a defense role in somalia and the way ahead there. the united states as you know has not maintained an official military relations with somalia since the early 1990's a large part because there is not a u.s. recognize them it until 2013. in might of the recognition january of 2013, the department of defense -- in light of the recognition imaging were 2013, the department a defense looks to build a relationship with a somali national security forces. from 20is emerging years of civil war at all hazard knowledge. al-shabaab has led a violent insurgency in southern and theral somalia against former transitional government and now against the federal government of somalia and forces. once controlling most major cities, al-shabaab operated with impunity. and ethiopian forces have weakened al-shabaab as conventional fighting force. however, al-shabaab is still dangerous and capable of contested sophisticated -- conducting sophisticated activities to disrupt the government. recent events are sobering
today showed up in a shirt and tie wearing handcuffs. the defense asked to have the cuffs removed and the judge agreed. he stands accused of gunning down his friend. the semipro-football player oden lloyd execution-style back in june. surveillance video from aaron hernandez' home apparently shows him carrying a gun just minutes after that shooting. but, his defense lawyer says prosecutors still do not have the evidence to prove their case beyond and to the exclusion of every reasonable doubt. the new england patriots dropped the tight end shortly after his arrest. hernandez himself has pleaded not guilty to the murder charge and five different weapons-related charges. let's get to our correspondent rick lesson that you who is outside the courthouse in fall river, massachusetts this afternoon. rick, i guess we were waiting to find out whether a gag order would be extended and they wouldn't be able to talk about what's happening inside that courthouse. what's the word? >> well, shepard, i don't think anyone expected to see aaron hernandez take the stand during this pre-trial confere
the department of defense guidance saying that they interpret this as excepted activity. the army, navy, air force, the branches need to follow suit. secretary haig has not provided the proper guidance to congress. congress is playing games and the president needs to be the commander-in-chief. warriors deserve leaders and government. gerri: you could turn any defense department executive upside down and come up withh3 money that is owed to these people. we were dating it in our morning meeting. the government is not supposed to spend anything. the department of defense has one of the biggest budgets on capitol hill. it seems to me that the money should be there. do you fear that they are grandstanding, trying to prove their point about the pitical debate over the budget, the shut down in the government, and the result i our heroes are getting hurt. >> i think that would be truef laakers and perhaps the executive branch. i don't see that from the department of defense because in many cases the only discretionary funds available in this big fight over budgets often come from the defse establis
tomorrow but the chiefs are one of three remaining undefeated teams, thanks in large part to a defense that has allowed the fewest points in the nfl. >> any good team, yes, i think they had one of the best defenses in the nfl. i think it is going to be the best defense to be played this year. and so yes, they got a tough team, but we're very tough, too. >> on the other side of the ball, for kansas city, it is a very familiar face, but as usual, alex smith is not getting a ton of credit for his team's success. however, he does have the respect of raiders defensive coordinator jason tarver part of the 49ers staff, when smith was drafted, in 2005. >> he is a great person. and he handled himself professionally. and i would say, a lot of his growing up process, and i can't say enough about him. he has overcome a lot of stuff. >> he is a heck of a player. he makes people around him better. and that is very important in this business, and in his job. >> making life easy for andy reid, too. you can see the raiders and chief, right here on kpix 5, tomorrow morning, and stay tuned for the 5th q

undefeated teams, thanks in large to a defense that has allowed the fewest points in the nfl. >> are they a good team? yeah. i think they have one of the bestses in the nfl. i think it's going to be the best defense we play this year. so yeah. they've got a tough team. but we're very tough too. >> on the other side of the ball, for kansas city, is a very familiar face. there he is. alex smith isn't getting a ton of credit for his team's success. however, he does get the respect of the raiders' defensive coordinator tarver, who was part of the 49ers' coaching staff when smith was drafted in 2005. >> he is a great person. and he handled himself professionally. and i was there for a lot of his growing up process. can't say enough about the young man. he is a great young man. and he's overcome a lot of stuff. >> i love what he's doing. he's a heck of a player, makes people around him better. and that's very important in this business and in his job. >> you can see the raiders and chiefs right here on kpix 5 tomorrow morning and stay tuned for the fifth quarter with dennis o'donne
have long prided themselves as an organization that is strong on defense and can always run the ball on offense. coach john harbaugh eluded to that in his press conference today. the defense played pretty well against the packers yesterday. allowing just one touchdown. the running game of the ravens never got going. that's become a reoccurring problem. >> it's become a particular and at times frightening scener for the ravens. flacco getting sacked five times. along with that, ray rice and the run game going nowhere, ranking at the bottom of the league. >> we're just not getting the yardage and the increases that we need right now. we're kind of unsuccessful at a lot of other things because of that. >> nothing is simple. it can be fixed. we have the guys to do it. i really feel strongly about our offensive line. i think we have the men for the job. coaches and players, we have a great group. we have some depth in there too. there's some things we need to clean up. >> while the ravens search for answers we asked you with our wjz fan cam what do they most need to do to improve. >> def
